Modified Roosevelt Log Home Design

This is an interesting and compact main-level plan and a great master suite layout. The upper level is excellent too, and the covered bedroom balcony is well done.” Robert Pernell

This timber frame plan design has tremendous character, from the unique double strut trusses and flared log posts to the large window configuration over the kitchen sink. The kitchen window adds an abundance of additional light, allowing you to grow herbs and plants on the large, widened windowsill.

The kitchen provides plenty of counter and prep space along with a curved island/eating bar. The openness allows you to prepare diner for your guest while continuing to entertain and be a part of the action.

The semicircle space off the kitchen incorporating the dining room, adds a dynamic interior space. This space also adds tremendous character to the exterior and allows for a premium amount of glass and additional access to the patio. The large covered/exposed patio off the dining room, living room and master bedroom acts as a great extension of the interior space. Open the double French doors off the great room or master suite and enjoy the outdoors.

The substantial master suite contains a walk in closet and a sitting area perfect for curling up and indulging in a good book. There is also a generous ensuite with a double shower and rare corner window for the soaker tub.

The second floor has a convertible loft currently designed as a loft/study combo. This floor also contains two spacious guest rooms or kids’ rooms, which share a large covered deck once again accessed by double French doors. This floor has lots of extra storage room in the low headroom areas.

This home is packed full of extras, yet maintains a simple, open plan concept.

Modified Ruby Lake Log Home Design

The Ruby Lake truly is a gem and by far our most popular plan. This two story home immediately meets you with expansive views and spacious living. The spacious living room layout promotes conversation and interaction in every space, while allowing family and guests alike to enjoy the magnificent view. The L-shaped kitchen provides plenty of counter space along with a good-sized island that has views on three sides, including a clear view of the massive double-sided fireplace.

Efficiency is the cornerstone of the Ruby Lake. Carefully placed shelved-wall niches adorn the bedrooms and add visually interesting elements throughout the space right up to and including the spiral stairs. The subdued placement of the stacked washer and dryer allow for more room in the bathroom, while staying tidy and out of sight. The doubled sided fireplace allows for two separate fires to be going with just one flue. This comfort extenuates the Ruby Lake’s ability to take living outside. Hideaways are created throughout the house and even on the deck. The covered deck creates a perfect haven to enjoy the outdoors even during inclement weather. The sun deck atop the master bedroom fashions relaxing afternoons sunbathing while evenings can be spent snuggled up with a loved one underneath the glittering sky.

The Ruby Lake is a well planned, efficient home that utilizes space efficiently while taking advantage of the picturesque landscape.
